Have you ever had a feeling that you wished you could express to someone – anyone at all – but you were worried that you’d fail miserably? It happens to me from time to time. This past week, it was when I was driving home from church on an empty expressway at night. The sodium vapor lights were speeding past, and a part of me just wanted to keep driving forever…

Another hour deeper in the night
Another mile farther down the road
A man can drive as hard as he can drive
And never get as far as his heart was meant to go
Sometimes when you look up in the sky
You think we might be closer than you know
